Students will understand the theorical background of human-computer interaction and user interface (UI) design, will learn formal description of UIs, formal user models, the fundamental notions and procesures. They get acquainted with graphical, speech, and multimodal UIs. Thanks to the gained knowledge, the students will be able to design advanced UIs.


Students should know the fundamentals of software system design, creation, and maintenance. Active knowledge of any programming language.

Syllabus of lectures:

1. Human-Computer Interaction (HCI) and User Interface (UI), definition, examples, history.

2. Information and UI, various levels of inputs and outputs, user skills, ways of interaction. Standards for UI.
